nurse manager

clinical nurse manager

A nurse in the UK who is responsible for two or more wards, a department—e.g., surgical or medical diagnostics & imaging—in hospital, or an entire directorate. Depending on the role they shoulder, clinical nurse managers are often less involved in clinical nursing and more involved in management on a clinical level.

Clinical nurse managers are usually at pay band 8a, but up to 8b/8c which corresponds to H grade under the Whitley system, which was officially retired with the Agenda for Change system but may still be used in the working parlance. The term for the nurse shouldering this role may differ regionally, with some regions preferring lead nurse.
